My original intent was to publish a post with videos of actual Vietnam War footage that included popular tunes from groups at the time.  However, as a result of my post last week (35 tunes from the Vietnam War Era) many of you suggested tunes that were not included in either post, in fact, some of those listed were new to me. I collected all the recommended titles and artist names from the comment section of the previous post and also from my FB groups. So, a 19 video post has now evolved into 45.

I do have other video collections on this website – I’ve included the links at the bottom of this article. The suggested additions may or may not include footage from the war. However, where possible, I did look for them. Besides, I believe that most of you will sit back and close your eyes anyway and just bask in the sounds. This has turned out to be quite a collection. Enjoy!
